TOLEDO—The implementation of a new Roman Missal translation in November is an opportunity for the church, said the executive director of International Commission on English in the Liturgy (ICEL), the organization that led the translation process. 

“I think we have to reach a point where the idea of the challenge gives way to the notion of the opportunity,” Msgr. Andrew Wadsworth told an audience of more than 300 people attending a conference March 26 at Toledo Rosary Cathedral.

Msgr. Wadsworth spoke during two sessions, including questions and answers at the end of the second session. Hear both parts in their entirety by pressing the play buttons below.

CAREY—Music directors from around the Diocese of Toledo gathered Feb. 6 to hear a sampling of newly composed Mass parts that use the new translation of the Roman Missal.

Because the text of prayers such as the “Gloria,” “Holy, Holy” and memorial acclamations are to change, Catholic music publishers released new music compositions to incorporate the changes.

Some compositions sound similar to those currently used while others have a new melody.

Each parish is to determine which compositions will be best for their congregation, said Paul Monachino, diocesan liturgical music director.

TOLEDO—Bishop Leonard P. Blair urged members of the church to stand against attacks on marriage and to stand up for the meaning, dignity and sanctity of marriage and the family.

“This requires that we advocate for legislative and public policies that define and support marriage as a unique essential relationship and institution,” he said, adding that Catholics should also “oppose legislative or judicial attempts to grant same-sex relationships the equivalent status and rights of marriage.”

Bishop Blair’s remarks were made Feb. 3 during the First Thursday Dialogue, a monthly luncheon sponsored by Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Toledo, the Evangelization and Parish Life Secretariat and the Blessed Teresa of Calcutta Deanery.
